Re: Considering BT

A Roku is certainly a popular option for multi-room access to apps. I’ve got a Fire tv 4K stick myself. As a BT Broadband customer I believe it’s possible to have the BT Sport app on a month-by-month basis for £18 per month. You would get Discovery+ at no extra cost with this.

Not entirely true, you can watch your NOW channels via the NOW app, but will need to use others to replicate the rest of your package.

Usually on a streaming device (there is some variance), you can access:

  • BBC live channels and on-demand via iPlayer
  • itv live channels and on-demand via itvX
  • Channel 4 live channels and on-demand via All4
  • Channel 5 live channels and on-demand via My5
  • NOW TV live channels and on-demand via NOW app
  • UKTV (Drama, W, Dave, Yesterday) live channels and on-demand via UKTV Play
  • BT Sport live channels and on-demand via BT Sport app
  • Eurosport, TLC, Discovery etc. live channels and on-demand via Discovery+
  • Netflix
  • Disney+
  • Paramount+
  • Prime Video

I could go on, there is loads more not listed here. 

Once you realise how you can pretty much access everything in decent quality (usually HD as a minimum) via any decent streaming device, the only three questions you will need to figure out is:

  1. What do we actually watch?
  2. Do we watch it live or on demand usually?
  3. Do we really need a 18 month to 2 year contract to access it via a TV provider?

You will likely find the answers to 1 and 3 are "less than you think" and "no".

Re: Considering BT

Do you record TV a lot? Watch live? Watch on demand?

Are you comfortable using different apps and devices or would you prefer to use a single interface to organise your viewing? Do you really love a TV guide? Do you really watch in 4 different rooms and do you do it often?

Do you like apps or do you mainly watch broadcast TV?

The answer here, depending on your preferences may be you need to negotiate better with Sky. 

You can replicate much of the experience with BT, but you would need to put some work in, that isn't for everyone.
